Van Halen To Be Present At Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction

LiveDaily.com reports: After weeks of speculation, it appears that Van Halen members Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar will be on hand for their band's March 12 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, according to Premiere Radio Networks.

It remains unknown if any of the band members plan to appear on stage to accept the honor; at last count, Hagar and Anthony are on the outs with the Van Halen brothers, and Roth's status is up in the air following recent news that a planned 2007 summer reunion tour featuring Roth, the Van Halen brothers and Eddie's 15-year-old son, Wolfgang Van Halen, on bass, has been indefinitely postponed.

As previously reported, Velvet Revolver is expected to perform during the ceremony in lieu of Van Halen; the move harkens to last year's ceremony, during which Metallica performed a tribute to 2006 inductees Black Sabbath.

According to the L.A. Times, only Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar will show up. Dave wanted to perform with Velvet Revolver, but the show's producers told him 'no,' so Dave has decided to stay in his hotel room Monday night. And Eddie Van Halen and Alex are staying in California. Roth is quoted as saying, "If Ed ever dries up, this is going to be a stadium act, man... What's happening here with this [Rock and Roll Hall of Fame event] is part and parcel of
the same spiral that screwed up the tour."
